Ghosts + Shows In Boston This Week

London band Ghosts is about about to pop -- they've released a handful of singles, including the unforgettable "Musical Chairs," and are hard at work on their debut album, which will be released in the UK on Atlantic this spring. They've supported great acts like Air Traffic and Snowfight In The City Centre, and will be doing the same for The Feeling later this spring in the UK. I've heard five tunes from these guys so far, and for the most part, they are quite catchy and melodic. It's the type of stuff that will make any Keane fan go wild, and for some of us, that's quite a good thing.
